    It was already printed before they decided to stop the line. They wouldn't go through the cost of reprinting.

    This is not the first time this has happened. I'm pretty sure some Animated boxes advertised redecos that never saw release.

    I wanted those toys so bad. On topic, the soundwave thing worked out because the day I first found that trilogy prime was the same day I got my soundwave in the mail.

    That seems like a such a troll. "Hey, here are some toys you'll never be able to get at your local store! Ahahaha"

    Damn it, I would love those Animated repaints. They all looked fantastic (and I didn't even like the original Swindle). The teasing is too bad. I still need to track down a Que one of these days.

    The blue boxed Alternators had a cross sale for a yellow Alt Tracks as well.

    It's simply a case of plans changing.

    This is nothing compare to that Canadian TRU flyer that mistakenly used Transmetal 2 stock photos for Star Wars shit a couple months back, and horribly maltransformed ones at that.
